Viña Mayor Verdejo is a wine that is produced with Verdejo and a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc, both from vineyards that are over 60 years old. They are harvested at night to take advantage of the lower temperatures and preserve all their aromatic potential. Once the harvest arrives at the winery, and after it goes through a soft stomping process, it ferments in stainless steel deposits at a low temperature. Here, the harvest is left for 2 months on its fine lees.

When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.
